I keep pinching myself and asking Bill if its really true that he is officially graduating from graduate school. The answer each time has been a loud and resounding, "YES!"

I am so happy, overwhelmed, and admittedly, scared. My life for the past nine years has entailed my husband being in college in one form or another. The rhythm of my life has been determined by the events surrounding my husbands college career. We have dreamed of the "one day" that would be heralded in with him graduating from college. Our lives have been painted with the imaginings of what our dream lives will be once he was graduated and had landed the "dream job". Here we now stand on the cusp of one phase ending and another waiting to begin and I am...TERRIFIED! I have found comfort in having a predictable life that has been dictated by the needs of my spouses education. I realize that it is up to us to take hold of the reins of our own destiny and create our own hopeful and amazing tomorrows. Admittedly, I have absolutely no idea how to do this. However, I am so proud of my husband for the hard work he has put into his education and I am nostalgic of the changes and amazing people and life lessons we have learned. I am planning a party for Bill that will be held at our house after the hooding ceremony, if you are interested please email me or leave a comment. I am in the midst of preparing for finals and have not been able to officially send out invites, it has been more by word of mouth and this is my way of saying if your one of our readers, chances are you are someone important to us. Let me know if your interested in joining in on our festivities to celebrate this amazing and momentous occasion.

Congrats! I totally know what you mean about being terrified. We have been graduated for 2 years now and I still miss college. :( It was a wonderful time. A much SIMPLER time. Everything revolved around school. It was amazing. I don't care that we were poor. I will never forget such a wonderful experience. I still miss campus, AV, all the friends, and the cemetery. :)

It is a huge accomplishment though. Everyone has to move on right?

Couldn't have said it better myself! I wish I could come, but we have our own party for the exact same reason. I'll be thinking of you that day and hope to see you at the ceremony. Yeah for Bill!
